Bomma - working time?

For those who have now worked with Bomma, how would you characterize its working time relative to:

- Spruce Pine Batch
- Spectrum Premium 2.0 Nuggets
- Cristalica
- Oceanside Nuggets

Thanks for any info.

I'd say you're in the 2.0 territory, maybe even spruce but it's been a while. Definitely longer than Cristalica, and miles from Spectrum Studio(Oceanside?).

Switched a few months ago from the 2.0 nuggets and I like Bomma better. Working time is probably about the same, maybe a touch longer. I haven't blown SP in a long time; I'd guess Bomma is about the same in working time. (I don't think working time is much of an issue unless you're mold blowing though) Bomma is beautifully clear and really nice working. It doesn't glow quite as brightly as other glasses when hot. I notice it most when pulling cane--it keeps pulling even though it appears pretty cool based on its color. Bomma is probably my favorite out of all the clear formulas I've used. No compatibility issues so far with Gaffer color, Sys96 rods and Reichenbach trans colors.
